Ericsson commitment to the United States

 

In recent years, Ericsson has made significant investments in the US with two major acquisitions (Cradlepoint in 2020 and Vonage in 2022) totaling $7.3 Billion . These acquisitions increase our US presence and will spur new innovation in the wireless ecosystem. In addition, we built a new factory in Lewisville, TX, producing the first 5G radios in 2020. This US based factory brings radio production and supply chain close to US and Canadian customers.
